This is my third Lexus RX and by far the best yet. The previous were 2004, and 2005. The 2008 is smoother, quieter, faster and slightly more fuel efficient than the 330s. The transmission shifts seamlessly and the power comes on more smoothly. This car is one that can handle many needs. Its very comfortable and all the controls are easy to use. Everything works perfectly. The back-up camera and gen 5 nav systems are definitely upgrades over the 2005. Both previous RXs were very reliable with no service issues at all, and this 2008 should be the same. Has no problem in snow. Gets you where you need to go in comfort and without any worries. This is where it excels.
Reliability, comfort, controls, safety, great bulid quality, and great dealer service.
Needs MP3/iPod connection. Have to play my iPod through a cassette adapter! If you want fun to drive, get an IS 250 instead.
